We propose a general self-pumped four-wave mixing device in which the pump waves are derived from a single incident optical beam. In a single-mode fiber, only the fundamental mode of the fiber can propagate. The output of a single-mode fiber can provide pump waves of four-wave mixing. We have demonstrated that the phase distortion is eliminated by using this device.
